He came back to me 16 minutes and 59 seconds into Beethoven’s Symphony no. 7. We parted amid tragedy, so it seemed poetic. Dylan O’Dea, my childhood sweetheart, had once meant everything to me. Now we were strangers, and honestly, after 11 years I never thought I’d see him again. I lived in the world of the average, of getting paid by the hour and budgeting to make ends meet. But Dylan, he lived in the world of wealth and success. He’d achieved the great things I always suspected he would. The dissatisfaction he’d felt as a teenager had obviously been an excellent motivator. He started a business from scratch, pioneered a brand, and created perfumes adored by women across the globe. I was just one of the people who’d been there before. Now he was living his best life in the after. And me, well, I’d been in a dark place for a while. Slowly but surely, I was letting the light back in, but there was something missing. I was an unfinished sentence with an ellipsis at the end. And maybe, if I was brave enough to take the chance, Dylan could be my happy ending. How the Light Gets In is Book two and the concluding installment in L.H. Cosway’s Cracks duet. 1.

Sweeping from the glamor of 1930s Paris through the battlefields of World War II and into the war´s long shadow, The Age of Light is a startlingly modern love story and a mesmerizing portrait of a woman´s self-transformation from muse into artist. (Celeste Ng, New York Times best-selling author of Little Fires Everywhere)She went to Paris to start over, to make art instead of being made into it. A captivating debut novel by Whitney Scharer, The Age of Light tells the story of Vogue-model-turned-renowned-photographer Lee Miller, and her search to forge a new identity as an artist after a life spent as a muse. ´´I´d rather take a photograph than be one,´´ she declares after she arrives in Paris in 1929, where she soon catches the eye of the famous Surrealist Man Ray.Though he wants to use her only as a model, Lee convinces him to take her on as his assistant and teach her everything he knows. But Man Ray turns out to be an egotistical, charismatic force, and as they work together in the darkroom, their personal and professional lives become intimately entwined, changing the course of Lee´s life forever.Lee´s journey takes us from the cabarets of bohemian Paris to the battlefields of war-torn Europe during WWII, from discovering radical new photography techniques to documenting the liberation of the concentration camps as one of the first female war correspondents. Through it all, Lee must grapple with the question of whether it´s possible to reconcile romantic desire with artistic ambition - and what she will have to sacrifice to do so.Told in interweaving timelines, this sensuous, richly detailed novel brings Lee Miller - a brilliant and pioneering artist - out of the shadows of a man´s legacy and into the light. 1.

Symphony of Light and Winter, Book #1 A paranormal series from 2016 Audie Award Winners - Renea Mason, Noah Michael Levine and Erin deWard. Love never dies, but sometimes it plays dead. For Linden Hill, life was predictable - go to work, an occasional drink with friends, and repeat - until one unexpected night when she finds herself face-to-face with her past - all six-foot-five-inches of sex-god perfection she once knew as Cyril. The problem? He died. Or so she thought. But Linden´s long-lost love isn´t welcoming her with open arms. Fueled by suspicion and doubt, their turbulent re-acquaintance drives Cyril to desperate acts. The chance at renewing their love is jeopardized, pulling Linden into his war with supernatural rivals hell-bent on his destruction. Defeating the enemy seems easy compared to surviving each other.

Told through Shame´s point of view, the final installment of the Lights of Peril MC series takes place on the ´´implied´´ wedding day. Shame is plagued with doubts surrounding his love for Mace. He loves her. He´s loved her since she was five years old, but feels he doesn´t deserve her. This uncertainty is surfacing while struggling to forget the loss of his tragic childhood. ´´What if the trigger has already been set and I´m going to wake up one day and realize I´m my parents´ son in their way of evil? The thought sickens me. I´m no good without Mace. I never have been. She´s the one person in my life I would refuse to live without. If I ever treated her and Ryder like my father treated my mother and I, it would make for an easy decision. I would kill myself.´´ Shame´s childhood wasn´t filled with happiness and love. It was heart wrenching and abusive. Used by his father and resented by his mother, a young Neil struggles through his days waiting for an escape, a savior. ´´As he seethes his anger onto me I feel the spit from his words land on my face and in it I smell his whiskey and coke coming down like rain over my blissful day. I´m working for them now. I´m nine and I´ve just been interviewed and hired for my very first job...running drugs.´´ Once meeting Doc, Lynda, Mace, Hem, and Sadey, his life changes from desolate to hopeful. ´´At just five years old, she found her way into my heart and loved me in a way I never thought I could be loved.
